I am Jackie, 72, a retired language teacher. I lived in the UK for 20 years , returned to France with my husband and we set up home in the Dordogne. I was widowed 12 years ago and later remarried with Deleep, 41, of Indian origin. We share our present life between France and Kerala (South India) Deleep works in tourism in both countries. We love travelling and meeting people. My interests are reading, gardening, cooking, swimming, looking after pets. Deleep loves yoga and cricket, talking politics, history and all things Indian.
At the moment we are specifically looking for an exchange with Canada, Montreal in september 2018 as my grand daughter and her boyfriend have recently settled there and we wish to visit them. We are ready to do a straight exchange or receive you in 2019 at mutually suitable dates. Or you may be interested in coming to Kerala in the winter.
Our home in France is a stone house from the 1890s, set in a large garden with a swimming pool (10m by 5). There is a terrace in the front, getting the morning sun, with a pergola and a vine, a terrace in the back. The area has lots to offer in the way of visits, from natural and prehistoric caves, medieval castles and picturesque villages. There are small towns with markets and restaurants serving attractive food. You can rent bikes, go horse riding, play tennis, go to the cinema in Le Buisson , enjoy concerts. There is a station and you can use the train to Bergerac, Perigueux or Bordeaux for day visits. We are not in the village, but there are neighbours within 150 yards.
Our Indian home is a villa built 5 years ago, in a village 12 km from Cochin airport. Although originally a rural area it is fast developing into a pleasant suburban district. Kerala is well-known for the Backwaters, which can be explored on a variety of boats, its spice gardens and tea plantations in the hills, ayurvedic treatments and massages, and numerous festivals in Christian churches and Hindu temples. The coast is 25 km away and Fort Kochi the old quarter of Cochin is 35 km away.
